With so many of us involved in the ag and food communities in Petaluma and the North Bay concerned about the health and well-being of our soils, we do come across an abundance of important, often compelling news worth sharing on the subject.
Thanks to D’lynda Fischer for bringing this to our attention.

Come learn how to mobilize your soil biology to improve plant and crop health. Dan will share his experience and knowledge covering soil biology basics, mineral balancing, growing with minimum tillage, fertigation/irrigation best practices and using Brix as a quality monitoring tool. Walk away with an understanding of why growers are adopting biological farming methods to address soil deficiencies and grow higher quality food crops.
